For my students who need to practice the Pen Tool, Adobe’s created an adorable online game to practice it’s usage. The pen tool is important in Adobe Illustrator (of course), but also in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, InDesign, Animate… there’s a version of it in almost every Adobe App!
Check out the game here: https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/illustrator/how-to/pen-tool-game.html
6 years ago, I made a video for St. Patrick’s Day on how to make Green Beer in Photoshop (I’m no brewer, but I assume that in real life, the method’s different, if you want to drink it!)
Photoshop’s changed quite a lot in 6 years, but the fundamentals remain. This lesson is as appropriate for today’s version of Photoshop as it was 6 years ago. Enjoy!
You guys have been seeing me touting On1 Photo RAW and the On1 Suite of software for some time. I promote it, because i use it, and I think it’s amazing. And, with the upcoming release of RAW, it’s going to become more amazing.
But, some people have been approaching me with questions on how to get started with the software – how to use it, and how it may apply to them. Of course, I can teach you (that is my business, you know), but they also have a terrific online community – with excellent tutorials on everything from broad to minute detail on their products, along with some other perks. It’s called On1 Plus. Here’s some of what you’ll get:
- ON1 Photo RAW – Own it Forever
- Technical Support
- Personal Coaching
- Exclusive Video Library
- Private Online Community
Notice – the full license of PhotoRAW, PLUS all that other great value!

I’m not usually one to suggest people learn from others, considering Adobe Training is what I do – but I firmly believe that giving students ideas for supplemental learning can always help them to practice what I teach and help to embed the information they learn in my classes.
So, I thought sharing a deal on a lifetime subscription to TrainSimple’s Adobe Training might be helpful to those who want reference information, and ways to practice what I teach. Take a look at this deal – good ONLY today!
For my design and typography students, here’s a really nice blog with some tips and ideas to improve your feel for good design, good use of typography, and maybe provide some inspiration.
Adobe TV has offered a new tutorial on how to manage missing fonts in an InDesign document. As you know, with InDesign, if you don’t have a particular font installed on your system, you will receive errors when you open a file that uses those fonts. This tutorial shows the Find Font feature that’s existed in InDesign for several versions going back. However, at 5:23 in the video, this instructor will reveal a VERY cool new feature to manage fonts in InDesign CC. Take a look!
Okay, I’ve already admitted that I don’t like hand-coding websites, and prefer to use WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) visually oriented Web design software like Dreamweaver, Flux, or some others. However, sometimes we HAVE to get into the code. CSS3 is a growing technology that enables web pages to do a lot of designer-y things they couldn’t do before.
This article explains why you may want to use these techniques, and how to implement them. Nicely done, WebDesignerDepot.com!
Last year, I made a tutorial on how to use Adjustment layers and masks to Create Green Beer for St. Patrick’s Day.
I thought this would be a good time to pull that one out again! Check it out at:
